Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike says he owes nobody any apology for supporting power shift to the South.
Wike, who said this during the commissioning of a road project in Etche local government area on Monday, said he is one of those who stood firm for power to return to the South.
According to him, the rotation of power is for equity, fairness and justice, adding that the Integrity group agreed for power to return to the south
He also said he has no problem with people who voted for Peter Obi or Ahmed Tinubu, noting that his position was for anybody from Southern Nigeria.
“I owe nobody any apology at all. I am one of the apostles, one of those who stood firm that power must rotate to the South. This is for equity, this is for fairness and this is for justice,” he said.
“Whether you voted for Labour, I have no problem with you. Whether you voted for APC, I have no problem with you. That is what we have argued for: that the north has had it for eight years. Therefore the south must be there for eight years.”
“As far as I am concerned, anybody from south, that is my position. That is what we agreed in the Integrity Group that we must make sure that the south emerges as the next President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he added.
